Volume Force

Volume Force

 

a force acting on all particles (volume elements) of a given body and proportional to the mass of the particles. Gravitational force is an example of a volume force. The limit of the ratio of the geometric sum of the volume forces acting on a particle to its volume when the volume is contracted to a point is called the volumetric stress at the given point.
